March Club

It's time for March Club already! This month I had a guest demonstrator (my sister) prepare and demonstrate one of the cards that everyone made, you will see it down further on this post!

The first card we made is this Crimped Envelope Pocket Card that uses the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Polka Dot Punches and the Sale-A-Bration Ribbon Bundle So Saffron ribbon. (You can find the tutorial on how to make a Crimped Envelope Pocket card on Splitcoaststampers by clicking here). The colors on this card are Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, So Saffron and Whisper White.

This stamp set coordinates perfectly with t
he Scallop Circle and 5-Petal Flower punches, so I used them to punch out the embellishments on the bottom right of the card. I also used the 3/4" circle punch and the Circle Scissor Plus to get the other circles on the card. I added a small Whisper White button, from the Button Latte Designer Buttons pack, and a small piece of Whisper White ribbon to finish off the outside of the card. When you take the top off the card, this is what is inside. I used the Scallop edge punch on the Certainly Celery card stock to give it some character.

The next card uses the Inspired by Nature stamp set that is on the Dormant List. The flower looks like it was water colored onto the paper and I did this by coloring directly on the stamp with the appropriate markers (Summer Sun, Old Olive and Pink Passion), "huffing" the stamp, stamping it onto the Water Color paper and then Aqua painting the stamped image on the paper to make it blend better. I framed it with Basic Black card stock and adhered it to the rest of the card.

The Kraft card stock was run through the Big Shot with the Stampin' Up! Backgrounds 1 texturz plate and then I added three black brads at the bottom of the card to finish it off.

The last card we made was the one my sister prepared. It uses the Trendy Tree's Stamp set, 5/8" Grosgrain Regal Rose ribbon, Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Old Olive and Whisper White card stock, a Clear Transparency sheet and the Photo Corners punch.

This second picture shows that she put the Clear Transparency sheet over the Whisper Whit card stock that she stamped the Trendy Tree's on. This is such a cute stamp set and it has so much potential!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great week!
